**Proposed Minisymposium “Riemann Surfaces”**

at SIAM – Conference on Applied Algebraic Geometry, 9-13 July 2019, Bern, Switzerland

In the past decades, the central role played by Riemann surfaces in pure mathematics has been strengthened with their surprising appearance in string theory, cryptography and material science. This minisymposium is intended for the curve theorists and the avant-garde applied mathematician. Our emphasis will be on the computational aspects of Riemann surfaces that are prominent in pure mathematics but are not yet part of the canon of applied mathematics. Some of the subjects that will be touched upon by our speakers are integrable systems, Teichmüller curves, Arakelov geometry, tropical geometry, arithmetic geometry and cryptography of curves.
